2014 Dodge Journey vs. 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport than in the Dodge Journey, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Dodge Journey and the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Convenience
The Dodge Journey requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Dodge Journey or the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Journey is much higher than that for the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey is much slimmer than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Dodge Journey, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Dodge Journey does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Handling
The Dodge Journey has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is clearly the choice over the Dodge Journey for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Journey greatly out-muscles the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Dodge Journey has less cargo space than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Journey is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.
